Looking to bring together inspiring role models from outside your network and find out industry best practice?

After spending over 10 years in the recruitment industry and regularly networking in Tokyo, I can help your organisation to connect to a wide range of experts and guest speakers. When your team claims “there are no female role models”, you can leverage my network to expand your reach.

Let me help you source and then moderate an inspiring panel.  Engage your employees with best practices in women’s empowerment, diversity and inclusion and work-style reform in Japan. Who would you like to hear from? Contact me today to source your ideal panel.

Through working with clients on Diversity and Inclusion programmes and leading monthly Lean In Circles since 2013 in Tokyo, Jennifer speaks passionately and persuasively on the following topics:

  • The pros and cons of women only support networks – how to use them, what to expect from them
  • Unconscious bias – why it is not a get out clause and why training might not have the impact you expect
  • Navigating childcare leave  – best practices as employer and employee
  • Why I stopped looking for a “mentor in shining armour” – how to look inwards and trust your own strength
  • The elusive hunt for role models – When they don’t exist how can we create our own = use of vision board, values ad strengths driven – inner mentor work
  • Financial Freedom – why “Leaning In” is an economic imperative
